Apparantly an email from MS showed Halo 3 as one of their games that take advantage of DirectX. Hopefully, the rumor is true, but take it with a grain of salt.

Even if it does come to PC, I have a strong prediction that Microsoft is gonna lock the H3EK down.. aww, no AI Pelicans or Phantoms. Hmm, what about Recon and flaming head though? I can't imagine those not trying to be unlocked.

Hacked Recon is going to make the 360 players (hopefully cross-platform support) whine like crazy :\

Maybe that's a plus. So at least we can all heroically take down lots and lots of Brutes.

Big time lag, AI syncs it's position like every fifth of a second, so you imagine the network being overworked.

Halo 3 for PC was confirmed when Halo 3 was for xbox. It's no rumor.

The only thing that's going to suck is that it will most likely be out for vista, because of the graphics that it enhances. If it was for XP, Microsoft would regret it because of the life expectency that it has.

Another downside of it will be the specs you computer will have to have in order for it to run. I know me and half of the other Halo CE users won't be able to play it on account of the graphics it will have.

It is good it's happening, but the downsides overrun the upsides.

I can already hack recon on the xbox version. Also I doubt they will have a fully unlocked HEK. It will probably be just like halo 2 vista. What exactly is stopping them? Also bungie stated that they used a render farm of 256 servers ,that each have octa-cores, to calculate lightmaps which still tool 4 days to calculate. Also ai will NOT sync in multiplayer. Sentinels and other creatures do not sync in multiplayer because the halo engine has a list of settings to activate and deactivate depending on the map name which is already indexed in the maps header. Meaning that only SP maps have AI that sync, The best you can probably do it just like on the xbox when you can replace forge objects.

I'm hoping my nvidia geforce 8600 will be able to run it at 1280x960 on high detail and get 50-60 FPS. And maybe at least get 30 FPS on 1680x1050.

Original xbox's graphics, I think, were not equivalent to a 8600 GT but could still run Halo 2 at a decent res and detail, so I didn't get why H2 needed and 8600gt to play it on 1680x1050 no AA to get 60 FPS.

Halo 3 PC wont come out until 2010-2011. Think of this. Halo 1. 2001. Halo 2 2004. Halo 3 2007. Halo 2 Vista 2007. Now this may be a math lesson for some of you but you take the larger number and subtract that into the lower number. So lets see. 2007-2004 =3. so 3 plus 2007 =2010-2011.

The article reads:

Quote: Halo 3
Well, this isn't exactly rocket science, is it? Originally on PC, we've had both the previous Halos ported. The culmination of Master Chief's fight against the Covenant has earned Microsoft enough money to buy a child, name it Master Chief and make their own actual Cyborg. Except they haven't, which is for the best as we wouldn't want to encourage that sort of thing.

What will "suck" is that it will either be only on Vista or Vista2

Did someone mention earlier that recon could be hacked?

Well, I don't think this is possible. Modders on the 360's would have found the tag by now...

I already said. Recon hacks are possible. I made a app that does it called Mirage.

I hope they give un locked HEK... if not I'm not going to buy it. H2V's locked HEK simply made me give the game to someone else as it's un worthy without it. If they only release it with Forge then yeah, it'll be one huge finger to the CE/general Halo modding community... years later,we still play CE so imagine for how long we'd play Halo 3 with a good working HEK that could allow for a new generation of mapping. Halo allows for huge scale, better graphics and better details and over all better gaMeplay and by the same fact, more options for mapping.

mb someone with programming knowledge could unlock it if it was locked! but what WOULD suck is if they bring the banhamma on people using the maps that were made with an unlocked h3ek.. i have a feeling that could happen....
Edited by tomers113 on Aug 5, 2008 at 04:33 PM
I have a feeling that Bungie will have no power over someone when Halo 3 comes to pc. Howcome the "banhamma" hasn't happened to anyone that has modified Halo CE maps? Thats because they don't have power over that, and that is why the made Halo CE in the first place.

Mark V FTW.

Anyways the i think the most overused armor is Hayabusa, and to be honest it doesnt really look that great.
